Temporary Entry
Last published date:

The Controller of Customs and Excise is authorized to allow the temporary importation of goods.  The Controller may impose conditions on temporary importation, such as mandatory re-export, and may allow entry “for such period as he thinks fit” and “for such purposes as he may approve.”  Temporary entry is customarily authorized when goods are in transit to other countries or when goods are accompanying tourists.  Many freight-clearing agents are familiar with the processes required at the port of entry for such goods to enter Malawi.
